Came back from a labor day cookout and some family you need to say bye and get out of your life! I'm not the type that likes to brag or compete, but man my in-laws make it so obvious they are jealous haters. I have been self-employed for a while now, and my businesses are growing. Someone asked how I am doing with my clients and I said it's picking up. My in-law tells me in front of everyone "You don't have a college degree and a house" I replied "yeah but I been on three vacations this year and driving around a 60K car. I think I'm fine right now. She says my husband just got a promotion and making 120K a year. I tell her, yeah but that's gross lol. Then my brother in law tells me being self-employed sucks because of no 401K matching, no pensions, etc. WTF is wrong with some family! Why so much hate and jealousy? I find when someone knows your self-employed they get all worked up.
